ZAVIS – THE PRINCE OF PORNMUSIC UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF GRIFFITH’S INTOLERANCE
Rep. Ceha, 2006, 147 min
Scenariu si regie: Karel Vachek
VO ceha / Subtitrari in engleza

„Cele mai multe afaceri sunt pseudo afaceri, iar cele mai multe dintre activitatile oamenilor sunt pseudo activitati. Facem lucruri care nu ne asigura sustinere, care nu ne ajuta la ocrotirea speciilor si nici la inmultirea cunostintelor. Avem niste pseudo activitati si tot ceea ce ne dorim este sa ne distram si sa uitam. Folosim energia, pe care Dumnezeu stie de unde o avem, pe pseudo activitati si consecinta directa este ca ne distrugem craca de sub picioare. Despre asta sunt filmele mele“ (Karel Vachek)

ENGLISH VERSION

Tracing a three-legged dog and biped director on a journey through the Czech present and Czechoslovak past: the four-year-old Edward Beneš saves the lives of his parents, the sixty-year-old Václav Klaus plays and doesn’t play tennis, a statue bangs its head against a wall. People fight in ketchup and bury their dogs. A collapsed house, house made of marihuana and a millionaire’s villa. Polar bears, ants, falcons, foxes. Songs of Milan Záviš Smrčka. The world according to Karel Vachek.

A dog’s funeral becomes part of a chain of absurd events including a tomato ketchup battle, a reconstruction of the battle of Austerlitz and a motorbike show.  Its common denominator is the commercial interest of sponsors and big business, the ambivalent winners of privatization and participants of numerous corruption affairs. Vachek debates corruption and environmental disaster, but insists that there is an alternative.  Against the mass of pseudoevents is the independent techno-party CzechTekk, raided by the police despite the fact that it was entirely law-abiding, whose participants Vachek believes to be the new unionists.
